    CCM AS2 vs AS1 vs AS2Pro sticks

    On a related note - has the P30 been discontinued or is it in the process of being phased out? It’s on the FT2 but not the AS2 pro.

    Introduced through the Supreme line: - One90 zero negative space concept - Flexible tendon guard - Curv composite boot - Comfort Edge - Reflex tongue inserts - Variable tendon guard stiffness inserts

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    Weren’t some people complaining about the fact that their True’s DIDN'T come with a pointless heel cup not long ago?

    2019-2020 Gear Sightings

    The new model tacks skates. Otherwise I don’t see how this is any different from a post game in-locker room interview, aside from someone creepily taking a picture of PKs gear.

    Bauer Pro Stock Code help

    The stick that looks like a 1X Lite is a 1X Lite build. I’m confused as to what your concern is still.

    Bauer Pro Stock Code help

    I didn’t scroll through all the pictures at first - The grey stick S161XSE is a 1X 2.0 with the SE shaft walls as Psulion mentioned. The black stick S181X is a true 1X Lite build. S18 denotes the manufacture year which is when that stick was released. They are legitimate.

    The S16 Vapor 1X blade drops absolute bombs @psulion22 I’d buy those in a second, especially with a P91A.

    Bauer ADV vs BGP2P (Pro Stock ADV) weight?

    Bauer still fuses in the extension. I have a few +4 inch pro stock 1X Lite/2S Pros where I cut through the fused section and the top of the stick is double walled from the extension’s tenon and filled with epoxy and foam. They measure the flex at retail length and do not make any adjustments to the shaft construction unless the build calls for it (SE models as an example).

    Bauer Re-Akt Pro VVN Helmet?

    In that case you can probably take a VN small. It sounds like you’re in the smaller end of the medium adjustment range vs where I am. I had a small Kings Pro VN a while back and couldn’t get it on my head at the most open setting. Same with the 9.0 in a small. FWIW the pro VN is the best helmet I’ve ever worn.

    I’ll take the pill when you show me one guy using these on a Bauer skate at the NHL level. Until then they stay in the container.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    It’s made by True so it’s the greatest thing in the history of mankind and will instantly put Bauer, CCM, and Warrior into bankruptcy.

    Bauer Re-Akt Pro VVN Helmet?

    Sizing is the same. The helmet is basically an IMS 9.0 with the occipital lock in the back.

    Bauer Supreme 2S vs 2S pro skates

    Bumping an old thread - does anyone know if Supremes are still built on an oversized last? I.e is the retail D a true E?

    New Curves

    The combination of number and name solves both. Number stays constant, name continually rotates based on whoever they have under contract and is popular.

    New True Lid

    Protection aside, it looks like version 43.2 of the goofy Cascade M11 helmet.

    Glad the EQMs like it - but again, there’s no chance that thing gets installed on Bauer and CCMs at scale.

    Warrior Sticks

    Don’t worry about the lie numbers posted on the sticks. From brand to brand the equivalent patterns are about the same. I’d put them in the following order from highest to lowest assuming you’re running with the most common off the shelf patterns. P92/W03 = 5.75/6ish, full rocker and the toe points upward for many P88/W88 = 5.25/5.5ish, heel rocker and flatter through the toe P28/W28 = 5.25ish, huge heel and toe rocker. As a beginner I’d avoid it. PM9/W01 = 5, relatively flat bottom vs the others. Will be much less forgiving but probably the best beginner training tool of the four options. Stay away from hipster patterns like P106, P91, P14, P08 and P46 as trying to find them isn’t fun.

    Warrior Sticks

    I think going to a lower flex more generally would be more beneficial than trying to dial in the kickpoint.

    Curve Frustration - Need Recommendations

    +1 on the Bauer P14 P19 is also readily available in pro stock form.

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    You’re also missing the point. The skates will sell no doubt. I may even buy a pair myself. I just find it hilarious that a $599 skate doesn’t contain a feature that has been standard on high end skates for over 20 years.

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    In that case let’s charge $1199 for a Graf 703 or Reebok 9K and call it a day. You’re missing the point.
